I picked a Mariana Zapata novel not only as my last read of 2016, but also as my first one of the new year, and reading two of her books back to back has been absolute bliss. A superb storyteller, Ms Zapata takes her time to build the sexual and emotional tension between her characters, giving them time to learn about each other, making their feelings for one another evolve before our very eyes, and giving us a hundred little moments in between that make our hearts skip a beat. An absolute must-read.
So happy that one of my last reads of the year ended up being a SIX-STAR read!!! I never expected to find this perfect of a story, never even hoped I would connect with it so profoundly and adore its characters so much, but this book ended up being one of the most beautiful, poignant stories I have ever read. The author writes with such emotional intelligence, with so much heart and wit, it is impossible not to fall in love with these characters to the point of willingly losing ourselves in their every interaction. The story remains emotionally driven beginning to end, with no great highs or lows, but rather a constant stream of heartening moments that warm our souls from the inside out.
Wow, I think every piece of clothing on my body caught fire more than once while reading this crazy wonderful book. A true gem in every possible way, this was an addictive, well-written, impassioned love story that I simply could not get enough of, making it one of my top reads of the year, and most decidedly, one of the best sports-themed romantic comedies I’ve ever read. And, oh Lordy, were the sex scenes ever delicious!
A poignant but very sexy tale of a woman finding the man of her dreams, only to realise he’d given his heart away a long time ago, never wishing to have it back—this is a story that was unexpected in its depth and intensity, perfectly sprinkled with just the right dose of humour and eroticism to counterbalance some of its more sober themes, and cover to cover, absolutely impossible to put down.
What starts out as an amusing case of will-they-won’t-they, bursting with sexual tension at every corner, quickly changes into a touching love story between two kindred spirits who have a lot more in common than they ever thought possible. I loved every moment and found myself devouring this book in a single sitting.
